Well, a cliche line " Studying at an IIT is like a dream come true, esp. the older ones". Not because of the packages ( framed and hyped by the media, the truth is far more different.), but because of the exposure which it provides. Coming back to IITG, apart from its incredible, campus (most beautiful among the IITs), it provides you ample opportunities to grow, learn and explore. My department, I can say it is the most colorful department. Well known as the chillest deparment on the campus. Whatever we learn we apply, the best part of it, we only have 2-3 departmental exams. So, knowledge and application go side by side.

Infrastructure is generally available but it is very old fashioned. As we have recently gained national importance, so the infrastructure is improving rapidly. Although a well-equipped library with more than 2 lakhs books is available and all facilities like Wi-Fi, labs, classrooms, medical facilities, games and sports are available. The faculty members are highly qualified for all departments and they are quite helpful. Generally, the classrooms are not digitalised up till now, so the conventional way of chalk and blackboard is used. The student to faculty ratio is quite average. Till now, I did not get any industry exposure. Actually, we are new to the dual degree curriculum, so the course structure is still under process.

A wanderer's fantasy, the laziest demise. Certainly, a road you want to step up and chase down to, no wonders the clouds that hover around. Simply sophisticated and mesmerisingly emphatic, it proves out to be a journey worth taken. Carefree about the destination.

Escape from the blaring horns, smoke-spouting trucks and noisy vehicles into the lap of nature. Wake up to the joyous chirping of birds and the silken touch of warm sunlight on your cheek only to see the glint of fresh dew on the blades of grass. Walk around in lush green lawns and get surrounded by the swaying trees, the gushing winds and the gurgling waters. Lose yourself in the glowing sunset and fall asleep to the silent cradling of the magical moon.. welcome to IIT Guwahati.
